We have just returned from a family camping weekend which had its adventures, not least a dash to JR Leisure when our Wynnster Marseille was destroyed by the wind 1 hour after erecting it. We were pushed for time and had limited funds so opted for the Nevada M as it was an Outwell (good reputation) and would sleep all six of us at a push (2 teenagers in the living area, although they have their own small tents)We got our money back for the Marseille and added a few extra pennies and returned to the campsite to erect our second tent of the day. Erecting it was a doddle and it was up within half hour.

It has some nice little features such as the rain porch, mosi nets at all 3 doors and plenty of ventilation. All 6 of us slept in it on the last night and despite rain etc there was no condensation dripping from the flysheet.

The best thing about this tent was that it withstood a right old battering from the wind. I was surprised to read 2 reviews which ended in disaster caused by the wind. We used very few of the silly luminous plastic pegs it comes supplied with (this is the only reason I've marked it down). Instead we used rock pegs and maybe that made a difference. The tent flapped a bit but all in all it stood up well against the wind, unlike our Marseille.

I would recommend this tent as it's roomy and easy to put up with a few thoughtful touches.

We love our tent! We upgraded to this from an Atakama 5, to use for week long holidays. As a couple it is perfect size with room for dressing in addition to sleeping plus a spacious lounge area. The extension is also a good buy, handy to have should it be wet / windy! Have camped in quite strong winds with it and glad to report that no major issues!

This is a nice roomy tent, is a good height and ideal if you know that the weather is going to be peaceful.

However, I have given it 2/10 because if you are going to camp in anything other than a slight breeze, this tent will collapse, particularly if the wind is hitting the side of the tent. We camped for one night in changeable wind conditions; there was no way of pitching the tent in the direction of the wind. By morning the side of the tent was showing considerable weakness and constant re-tightening of the guy ropes revealed that the plastic pegs had begun to bend. We managed breakfast in the front extension, but by mid-morning, the side of the tent was being pushed so far into the living area that the front pole snapped. Admittedly, the wind had picked up, but other tents around us of a similar design were still standing.

Not much I can fault with this tent. Spacious and comfortable living area and light, airy bedrooms, though we have not used it to full capacity. We now have the front extension, which has added a very useful area to cook and sit in and is excellent when it is raining. The only criticism is that a couple of poles have snapped and the replacement poles appear to be much thicker and more substantial.

This tent is a death trap - not suitable for Scottish spring weather and not suitable for family camping!

We purchased the Nevada M, footprint, carpet and extension early April 2011. We put it up in the garden and found this easy enough and then took it camping with the family on the Royal Wedding weekend.

We pitched in glorious weather in a busy campsite. It took about half an hour, but was pretty straight forward. We were really pleased with the tent when it was up - nice spacious living area and lovely and bright. Hence the reason I've marked this tent 1 instead of 0.

However. During the first night, the wind picked up and changed direction. I wouldn't say it was blowing a gale or anything, but it did get quite gusty. We weren't too worried as had all the guylines up and had read good reviews about the tent online.

However, the gusts of wind were hitting the side of the tent, but as our baby tucked up and asleep, we kept it pitched where it was.

At about 12.30 am, there was a strong gust of wind and the tent flipped upside down with the three of us in it. We ended up under our airbed and the other side of our baby who had been tipped out her travel cot. It was an absolute nightmare and totally terrifying.

Thankfully our baby was fine and wasn't hurt. I got quite badly bruised and my husband cut his hand and his glasses were broken. It then took ages to get out the tent as everything was upside down and it was hard to find doors etc. Fortunately we had kept the partition between the two sleeping areas open, so I was able to get to my baby okay.

We managed to get out the tent to find that the cheap plastic tent pegs were bent (guess we should have known better and bought metal ones when we purchased the tent - but we kind of thought that it would be okay as we were told the tent as a package was suitable for spring and summer weather and the forecast had been good), two of the guy lines had snapped and some of the inner had ripped.

Ours was the only tent to have moved. There was a very similar sized/model Gelert tunnel tent next to ours pitched in the exact same direction and it was fine.

To cut a very long story short, we had to pack up and leave in the small hours and drive home.

I have been camping for 30 years and never experienced anything like this. Yes, the wind was hitting the side of the tent, but it was nothing like some of the wind we've camped in previously on the Western Isles. I think the Nevada M is really poorly designed - the wind seemed to catch on the canopy over the side door. The tent pegs are completely worthless - for such a supposedly good brand of tent manufacturer - why are they selling tents with plastic pegs? The guy lines don't seem to be up to much either. I've never had guylines snap before.

We are just lucky none of us were seriously hurt.

I will never camp in this tent again. With much persuasion the retailer replaced the tent with a Vango Maritsa 500 which we had up at the weekend and it seems much more robust. It was windier at the weekend than the Royal Wedding weekend and the tent didn't budge.

If anyone wants to view the Nevada M - try viewing it at Go Outdoors in Edinburgh - they've pitched our old tent - blood, broken guylines and all - as a demo tent!

Just returned from our first ever weekend camping trip in the Nevada M (2 adults and a 4 and 7 yr old). We are absolutely over the moon with the tent which we were lucky enough to get one of the Boxing Day bundle packages so got the tent, extension, footprint & carpet all in. It took about 30 mins to get the tent up which we thought was great for a first go. We watched the video on YouTube beforehand and made a few notes to take with us. We were surprised at how easy it was - even in a high wind.

We didn't put up the extension in the end as we were with a group of other families and had a shared cooking area but we still had bags of space inside the main tent. There is lots of light in the tent and lots of door/window options which I can see would be great in the summer. I would highly recommend the carpet -it makes the tent so cosy.

We were pitched next door to a Montana 6 which was our original choice but have to say the Nevada M offers a great space inside by comparison and is smaller to transport, lighter and quicker to put up than the Monty. All in all would highly recommend this tent and cant wait to go again!

What an excellent tent. We upgraded to this having owned a Vango Icarus 500 which we had no end of problems with (see my review). Absolutely love how light and spacious the tent is. We purchased the full package from Go Outdoors at a really good price (not as good as the Boxing day offer sadly!) but have to say would pay full price for it and still feel like I had a good deal. Very easy to erect and can really appreciate the quality when compared to the Vango. Am definitely an Outwell convert!

I bought this tent for w/end use with the children. We have a bear lake 6, but wonderful as it is, it's too much effort for just me and a children for 1/2 nights. Because we have a bear lake, I wanted to stick with Outwell, and they haven't disappointed. The tent was pitched,and beds, kitchen, chairs etc all in place within 1 hour, with myself and a 10 year old. Plenty of room inside, porch area over 1 door was great with the rain. The only reason I haven't given it a 10 is because it was so hot inside when the sun came out. We could have opened all the doors fully, but then I would have 2 dogs escaping! So, not as good as the bear, but excellent for w/end use with 2 children/ 2 dogs.

I don't really know why I'm writing this review as 58 other people have written about it already however ours is now about to embark on its third season of usage so I thought I would let you all know how well its lasting.

We bought it primarily to use as a 'weekend' tent as we wanted something that was quick and easy to put up but was big enough to accommodate 2 adults and 2 kids in relative comfort. We had looked at the Icarus 500 but went for the Nevada M as it was slightly bigger especially in the bedrooms.

The bedroom layout is split into a 3- 2 arrangement with a zip open divider between the bedroom pods so it can be opened up to make one large bedroom. Alternatively if not required the smaller bedroom can be unzipped and folded away to allow extra living space.

Throughout the tent there are lots of nice features, all the external doors have fly mesh on them so they can all be opened up leaving the mesh in place to prevent wasps flys etc getting. The left side door has a nice little canopy over it to help prevent rain getting in when the door is open. There are lots of handy storage pockets in front of the bedroom pods.

It has a nice size living area with a sewn in groundsheet (SIG) enough room for a small table, chairs a kitchen/storage unit. Its also nice and light with plenty of windows all with drop down curtains.

The nice thing about Outwell tents is the number of accessories available, we chose the fitted carpet, nice and cosy, and the footprint groundsheet there is also an extension to fit over the front of the tent.

Overall ours had stood up well to its numerous outings in all sorts of weather, we have had no broken poles,zips or any other damage whatsoever and are looking forward to another season with it.

So to anyone looking for a 5 berth tent give this one serious consideration you will not be disappointed

We love our tent!

This is our first family tent and it is great for us. We have the front extension, which personally I would consider a must for extended family holidays. We used it like most other people, for cooking, storage and also for sitting under during inclement weather - of which there was plenty!

The tent is spacious and incredibly light. We found it easy to pitch, although the front extension took almost as long as the main tent, I'm sure we'll get better with practise.

Our only complaint would be the bedroom sizes. Being novices, we didn't realise that 5 airbeds would not fit into a 5 berth tent! I guess we should have done more research. We managed to get around this by placing the 3 single airbeds across the 3 berth sleeping compartment, parallel to the door and they all fit this way. It was fine for us as the children all go to bed at the same time and don't tend to get up in the night, but it is a bit of a squash, with no gaps at all between the beds and I suspect we will upgrade to something a bit bigger in a couple of years.

We found the tent quality to be fantastic and it stood up to quite a battering during 2 fierce storms. I honestly thought we might blow away at one point, but no damage at all.

We would really recommend this tent, but probably for a maximum of 4!
